Ingredients

    3 Medium leeks
    3 Medium potatoes - peeled and diced
    1 small/.5 med. onion diced
    2 Tbsp salted butter
    8 cups chicken stock (I use bullion cubes)
    1/2 cup fat free sour cream
    2 tsp paprika
    1 to 3 cloves garlic crushed
    Fresh ground black pepper to taste (I use quite a lot)
    Salt/seasoning salt to taste





Directions

Makes 10 1-cup servings.

Split and wash leeks. Remove outer leaves, they tend to be tough. Slice white and light green portions of leeks finely. Saute in butter with a sprinkle of pepper until tender.
Add diced potatoes, garlic, onion and spices to stock, bring to a boil. Add sauted leeks. Simmer on low for 20-30 minutes until potatoes are soft. Mash potatoes in pot, or puree soup in blender until smooth. Add sour cream and season to taste. Soup can be served warm or cold.

*If you choose not to blend the soup, I like to add a little cornstarch and water to thicken it after I've mashed the potatoes. I also add 1/2 tsp dried dill occasionally for that summer flavour.
